You're right about Little Village - I have the cd and still play it. I loved every one of the band. And El Rayo X too. I have 3 records and saw them in LA. They were a great band. And Lindley's gifted. And weird. And introduced me to some nifty songs. It's just been a long time so I was checking. Oh hell, and a big shout out to John Hiatt, one of the great song writers.

Trump needs a corrector dude.

Ha ha ha, Trump and his cronies need a lot more than a corrector, they need an eliminator, IMO!

Yeah, as I'm sure you know the Hiatt album Bring The Family that was the origin of the Little Village thing has those guys (Nick Lowe, Cooder, Hiatt and Jim Keltner) playing Hiatt's strongest songs live in the studio recorded in like 3 days or something. Awesome.

Then Hiatt would tour with Sonny Landreth and those Louisianna dudes The Goners. Man, was that ever a hot band for that kind of music! I saw the 1988 Hiatt and the Goners tour at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, super great show.
